    Keep it white with maybe some pearl mixed in.

    You may be thinking of the Boss F150 that was produced.

    A color that has caught my eye lately is Steel Blue Metallic. If not that, I think a RedFire Lightning would look badass:rockon:

    A less glossy dhg would look sick, but either way... that color would look great and be "somewhat" subtle.

    I think comp orange would look sweet. Like I said in Boomer's paint thread as well I think Eleanor grey would look unreal on any new vehicle. GHI green might just be a bit too much for me imo, but then again it may turn out badass. I personally wouldn't take the risk though

    Thanks for all the input guy. I still don't what color to go with. Can someone photoshop some of the colors on the truck for me?

    If you were to paint it gotta have it green would you incorporate any decals or stripes or anything to break the color up? The only problem I see with that color on the L is a truck is a huge canvas and it just might look a bit strange with the whole truck being that color. You know what I mean?

    I think this color combo on a lightning would look wicked.

    Flat silver w/ black rims.

    If not white I really prefer metallic colors on the Lightning. It has so many nice curves that metallic paint really shows them off nicely.
